Familiar Face? It's John Grovenstein on the Cover of Red Hat's Course Catalog
Red Hat's newest course catalog features John Grovenstein, NIEHS information technology specialist, on the cover.
Grovenstein is a Red Hat Linux Certified Engineer. That is a professional certification granted only after passing rigorous hands-on testing at Red Hat. To pass, candidates must score at least an 80 percent in three areas: a written test, a troubleshooting test that requires fixing four broken servers, and finally, setting up a server from scratch, given some very strict guidelines. More than half the people who take the test fail in each class, and each class has people who have tried and failed before. With such high standards, Red Hat has honored NIEHS by selecting one of our brightest to feature on the cover. In total, there are three such certified engineers, called RHCEs, at NIEHS, and they all work in DIR.
